Usually the first room to greet guests, the living room is not only the most public area of any home, but also its most multifunctional.

A Room of Her Own: Women's Personal Spaces

Book Description
"In speaking with many women across the country," explains best-selling author Chris Casson Madden in the introduction to her new book, A Room of Her Own: Women's Personal Spaces, "I have discovered that as much as we revel in the hard-won victories that have given us new freedoms in pursuing careers and in creating loving relationships, many of us long to find the time in a busy schedule to relax and refresh ourselves, body and spirit. I firmly believe that in order to give back to our relationships, careers, families, and passions, we must pull in for short moments to take care of ourselves, then we can return to the people and places of our lives renewed, refreshed, and ready to continue the drama of our days with all the joys, sorrows, pleasures, and stresses that go with it."

Book Review
Whether it's a weekend home, a shady retreat out in the garden, or just the memory of a summer spent at the beach, many of us associate a specific place with a feeling of getting away from it all. It's a place one goes to feel removed from the stresses of modern life and leaves feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Of course, your idea of a getaway depends on your definition of relaxation, and Chris Casson Madden's Getaways serves up a variety of exemplary, sometimes lavish, retreats, such as a 58-foot boat; a family farm with a menagerie of horses, ducks, geese, and goats; and a compound in the Hudson River Valley with its own natural waterfall. Several celebrity getaways are featured as well, including Michael Keaton's cabin on his Montana dude ranch, a boathouse on the Hudson River that serves as Toni Morrison's creative...

From Publishers Weekly
According to the host of Madden, HGTV's Interiors by Design, a "decorating fear factor" prevents many people from creating the home of their dreams. In this invitingly straightforward book, she sets out to demystify the process of decorating a home for everyone from design enthusiasts to those she refers to as "decorator-challenged." Finding a personal style is the key, the author advises, and in the introduction she identifies three broad style categories: romantic, adventurous and serene (readers can take a quiz to find out which one best characterizes their taste). Madden then analyzes the elements of each style by showcasing romantic, adventurous and serene rooms and including helpful sidebars that instruct readers on "How to get this look." The tone throughout is warm and upbeat: though Madden's clearly...

Interior Visions: Great American Designers and the Showcase House

From Library Journal
This book takes the reader on a stunning tour of the halls, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, baths, and porches from 30 showcase houses throughout America. Over 200 excellent color photographs display the work of 150 of the country's master interior designers. Mario Buatta's preface sets the tone: "Doing a room in a show house is like giving a party; it is also an art." The rooms are indeed works of art, as each designer achieves a unified presentation of style. Still, this should not be considered a workbook or a guide for everyday design ideas. For professional designers and design students.- Margaret Jean Owen, Santa Ana P.L., Cal.Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc.
